Sun Dried Tomato- Red Pepper- No Bean Hummus





It won't be long now till we are on the road and headed back to New York. I made hummus a few months ago and still have half a can in the fridge. Not sure if tahini will keep and saw THIS recipe and decided to try it.

As usual I subbed ingredients- I used Slap Ya Mama instead of using the salt, cayenne pepper and paprika. I seasoned to taste.

Ingredients:

1 zucchini, peeled & chopped into 1 inch pieces ( I didn't peel the zucchini)
1 red bell pepper, chopped, seeded & cut into 1 inch pieces
2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup tahini
1/2 tsp.sea salt ( didn't use)
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper ( didn't use)
1/4 tsp. paprika ( didn't use)
Slap ya mama to taste


Directions:

Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender.

Blend until combined well.


Place in a bowl & serve with your favorite veggies or chips

  1. I've never tried hummus before until I had my hand surgery a year and a half ago. I loved it. We had a farmers market at work & the guy made it with almonds. I want to try this one, I know it will be just as good. Nice swap out with the Slap Ya Mama.

  2. This sounds delicious! I can't wait to try it. So glad you made it without peeling the zucchini since I'm lazy and might have failed to try this otherwise. :-) Thanks for linking up to the This Is How We Roll Thursday link party.

    1. LOL Corinne! I like zucchini skin and the only time I peel it off is if i get a huge zucchini from someone's garden and the skin is thick.

      Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

      See you next week

  3. I bet you'll be happy to be back in NY in a few months....not now....TOO MUCH SNOW!

    I tried Hummus once and liked it but for some reason never tried making it. Hey-this one has zucchini in it-it HAS TO BE GOOD! :) It looks like a nice healthy snack that I would enjoy.

  4. Every time I see you use the "Slap You Mama", I have to laugh. Who would think a seasoning would be called this. I have never heard of hummus made without beans. Love the bean ones. I doubt I would try making it tho, since I am not a handy one in the kitchen and don't have any of the machines you need.......like a food processor. Cyndy, I would love the almond hummus....anything almond is for me. This recipe sounds so good tho, and I do have a whole jar of sun dried tomatoes in the cabinet. Maybe I will attempt it. It has all the ingredients I like, so it will be worth a try. Thanks LInda for another tasty recipe....

  5. I have never found Humus in the stores. It sounds so good to. I know one little guy that will be happy to be back in NY. But I also know Leda is going to be lonely for you.

    1. Oh, the only one who will miss Florida is Gabe. He loves it here.

      If Leda had doctors she could go to in my area I would bring her home with me.

  6. I wish you could take Leda back to LI with you. She is going to be lost without you. I will keep sending her notes and cards. I think Monica would like this....I am going to make some for her. Don't go back to LI til the weather is much better.
